I have a DDM4 and I'm probably going to angeles to zero the iron sights. And i was wondering if you kind experts to give me suggestions on what to bring and what to expect when going to a range for zeroing a M4. Thank you always for your help.

I'm a rifle noob. Actually I only have a 10/22 with iron sights but if you're trying to zero your POA, a rifle shooting rest, bipod, or at least rest bag would help.

Bottom line is to start at 25 yds and get on paper. Once you are centered up there, move back to 100 yds and see where you are. Fine tune as required.

What he said. A front-sight adjustment tool is a nice thing to have for an initial zero, since you may have to go many clicks and it's a bit of a PITA using a bullet tip. Not essential, though. Shoot off a bench or from the prone. A decent rest is the only piece of gear I'd strongly recommend, but that's not to say you have to spend a lot of money on one. I've used a backpack stuffed with clothing, and it worked well enough.
